The setting is stunning from the mansion to the gardens to the poolside cocktail hour and the tented reception. It feels as though you have stepped back in time. The grounds are lit up at night and feels very romantic.

    The opulent Cuneo Museum and Gardens, located on 75 acres and dotted with formal gardens and statuary was the perfect setting for the wedding scenes in "My Best Friend's Wedding." The gazebo where the best friends were caught kissing was built specifically for the film, but Cuneo's owners liked it so much they decided to keep it permanently.   Cuneo Museum historian John B. Byrne has written a book about the Vernon Hills mansion. Part of the "Images of America" series, it hits the shelves at the end of the month. Vincent Pierri | Staff Photographer.
